Masterclass “The character of the character”
During the East Type West Type festival the letter junkies of High on Type join hands with the screen printers of AGA LAB. Together, this forms the basis of the master class where the crafts of letter designing and screen printing unite.
Each letter has its own character. During the master class, we find out how our writing tool and form choices affect this. After experimenting with different tools and techniques you choose one favorite outcome. With this we test the traditional boundaries of letter designing and everyone works on an individual design.
Then we make the step to production by screen printing. Here two important aspects of the design process come into play, namely colour and composition.
Each participant works towards a poster with one character. These are all presented in the final exhibition. By screen printing in circulation everyone goes home with a full set! (One print of each participant).
It promises to be an intensive and very educational day full of letter madness!
There is no required entry level. Using the skills of High on Type + AGA LAB all participants will be able to screen print a good point! Your enthusiasm is all that is needed. All supplies are available during the day.
